"My Artful Hand"

It took me a while but I finally got my artful hand put together! I took a trip to Boston and did some shopping to find the right pieces for it. Alot of it is Tim Holts items. Gotta love that man! While I was shopping I came across this lovely little dolly for three dollars! I could of cried when I had it in my greedy little hands.
I have already ordered another hand and will use queen things for it. I could of added alot more to the hand but had to stop somewhere. =o)

The Artful Hand

Would ya look at this? It's one of "Tim Holtz" beautiful creations." After looking at it forever.......I'm gonna make my own. Already ordered the hand and will start looking for trinkets to add. Doesn't it just scream creativity? I love pushing myself to new levels. And since I know Tim would never grace my little town I'll have to try it without him =o(! Just hope I can do it justice. Stay tuned for updates.

Baby Spoon Ring

I would like to share something very special. A ring I had made for my future daughter in-law. It was made from the baby spoon I fed my son with as a infant. A wonderful talented artist made it for me. If you get a chance, please check his shop,
I am just so thrilled and hope I can wait until Christmas to give it to her.
